iPad as Teacher’s Pet

I subscribe to a great blog that fills followers in on great tech tools for teachers. This blog is called TeachBytes… http://teachbytes.com

This blog recently came across a fantastic infographic by Tony Vincent that features tons of ways you can utilize your iPad as a teacher. By breaking down the infographic into verbs like show, manage, assess and interact, Vincent is categorizing how the iPad can be used rather than what the iPad can do. I think this is a very important distinction to make in instructional technology, and a distinction that helps teachers directly transfer ideas into their classrooms.

May 8 Jeffers Elementary

Here is the format I am thinking: (Topics will include: Live Streaming classroom activities, Classroom Blog, Assisting with Absent students)
  • You will be in grade level teams.
  • You will be thinking about an upcoming unit. Or maybe think about a unit you have already taught and how you can incorporate your iPad the next time.
  • I would like to show you a “cool tool” that can be used with that unit. Here are a few easy examples!
    • Skype in the classroom where they can connect with a professional on the topic of their unit. “Mystery Skype Guest”!
    • Using the Skype or Ustream to connect with other people.
  • How to share the cool things you are already doing in class (class blog or website) in a quick easy way!
  • Using the iPad to share a lesson with absent students. This can easily be posted to the blog as a “daily/weekly/couple per unit” post.
Before we meet, please watch these 2 items: You need a total of 4 minutes! Brent will be installing Reflection on to your computers. So with these short videos, you will be able to try it out.

Here is a link to the reflection app website video to see some capabilities: http://www.reflectorapp.com
Here is a youtube video that gives a quick 3 minute tutorial: http://youtu.be/SkEd5W_fQfs
